I've just had my conservatory flooded by a radiator leak while I was off on
holiday. I'm a
DIY novice so I though I'd seek some wisdom here :)
I'm assuming I will have to replace the radiator. What I need to know is whether
I can get
the ChemDry people in to clean up and possibly replace the carpet etc. before I
the radiator - I've closed the valves to stop any more water leaking out. Or
recommend getting the radiator switched first (which I'll need to wait for a few
do until I have time)?
I totally agree. Otherwise, it's likely you'll spill something nasty on the
newly cleaned carpet while changing the radiator.
You *are* sure, are you, that it's the radiator itself which is leaking -
and not the valves or pipework?
The first thing to do is to inform the insurance company. They will (with
luck) arrange everything and charge you the excess/wear and tear, which is
usually well worth it. In any case, is ANY claim is to be made they want to
know straight away and not have customer based delays involved.
In the unhappy case that you aren't insured, clearly you do the radiator
